|Chapter 18||Final Revelations of the Ultimate Truth||Verse 25|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Continuing Lord Krishna affirms that action which are undertaken under delusion without consideration of the good and evil consequences that will follow from such action, without evaluation of its worth; which incurs unreasonable expenditure in time, energy or resources, which causes injury to oneself and to others and is pointless to pursue is situated in tama guna the mode of ignorance.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
The word mohat means in illusion, deluded. The word ksaya means loss referring to loss of time, energy and expenditure. The word anubandham meaning consequences is not considering the consequences of one's actions and paurusam meaning capacity denotes oblivious to whether or not one has the capability to complete it. The word himsa meaning violence denotes causing injury to others. Lord Krishna reiterates that such endeavours engaged in foolish delusion are locked in tama guna the mode of ignorance.
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Those actions that are undertaken through the defect of not knowing that absolutely everything is under the complete control of the Supreme Lord Krishna. Those actions that are engaged in without considering the consequences of good or evil for them or determining as to whether or not one is capable of accomplishing them. Those actions that cause harm to others and to oneself and that are merely a waste of time, energy and expenditure. Such actions are invariably situated in tama guna the mode of ignorance.
